Hurricanes, floods and damp heat: Quality Roundtable at Solar Power Southeast 2019
Agenda: Trouble in the South: Hurricanes, floods and damp heat
Weather events and environmental conditions on photovoltaics projects and solar sites
Join pv magazine for a Quality Roundtable on May 30, 2019 at the Solar Power Southeast trade show in Atlanta. pv magazine USA is a website for the U.S. photovoltaics (PV) community, focusing on developments in both business and technology. The Quality Roundtable at Solar Power Southeast 2019 will explore many of the unique challenges posed by weather events and environmental conditions on photovoltaics projects and solar sites in southern states.
Hurricanes, flooding, and challenges of warm weather and humid climate
Through both interactive investigations of “projects gone wrong” and panel discussions between industry experts, the Quality Roundtable will examine how to deal with the challenges of construction, commissioning (Cx), and operations and maintenance (O&M) of photovoltaics projects and solar sites across the southeast region of the United States, including hurricanes and flooding — and the ever-present challenges of warm weather and humid climate.
Weather-related experiences from the field and the lab
The panel discussion will feature numerous photovoltaic and solar industry experts, including NEXTracker, Shoals, First Solar and PV Evolution Labs. The experts will share a wide range of weather-related experiences from the field and the lab to inform a broad spectrum of project stakeholders: developers, financiers, owners, operators, insurers, engineers, contractors, installers, and many others across the solar power industry.

Solar Power Southeast brings together those that are doing business in the region, or would like to conduct more business in the region to discuss strategies, market trends in the southeast, policy updates that impact businesses, and numerous networking opportunities to make more connections.
Highly regarded companies and organizations helped make #SolarSE 2018 be an event to remember! The event brought together industry leaders and innovators to share ideas and best practices for expanding the Southeast’s solar energy market and to network and do business.
Presented by the Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA®) and Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA), Solar Power Events strives to keep the industry moving forward by offering cutting-edge events centered around the trends, technology, and research that power the industry.
Unlike other solar industry events, all proceeds support the expansion of the US solar energy market through SEIA’s and SEPA’s year-round research and education activities, as well as SEIA‘1s advocacy efforts.
Commitment to Collaboration
The success of this event, and all Solar Power Events, is heavily driven by the two non-profit, membership organizations behind it. The partnership between SEPA and SEIA, through their joint ownership of the Solar Power Events, has resulted in the creation of a robust suite of business and education opportunities for the solar industry. Solar Power Events organizers and speakers will strive to create a welcoming, collaborative environment for all attendees and stakeholders. At times, debatable issues are discussed at Solar Power Events. These debates make the industry stronger and facilitate the healthy exchange of ideas in a collegial setting. All Solar Power Events speakers will strive to present balanced perspectives on contentious issues in a professional, constructive manner.
The Solar Energy Industries Association (SEIA®) is the driving force behind solar energy and is building a strong solar industry to power America through advocacy and education. As the national trade association of the U.S. solar energy industry, which now employs more than 250,000 Americans, we represent all organizations that promote, manufacture, install and support the development of solar energy. SEIA works with its 1,000 member companies to build jobs and diversity, champion the use of cost-competitive solar in America, remove market barriers and educate the public on the benefits of solar energy.

The Smart Electric Power Alliance (SEPA) is a non-profit organization dedicated to working with electric power stakeholders through the most pressing issues affecting the growth and utilization of smart energy. We are a trusted platform for education, research, standards, and collaboration to help utilities, customers, and other players deploy and integrate solar, storage, demand response and other distributed energy resources. Through educational activities, working groups, peer-to-peer opportunities and advisory services, SEPA engages interested parties in facilitating necessary information exchange and knowledge transfer to offer the highest amount of value for our membership and partner organizations.
